Made the switch

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

So after I hit the gym this morning (and I'm proud of my trip) I got the red "burning too many calories" message in my fitness tracker. So I decided now would be a good time to make the switch to the variable calorie tracker, the new one that SP introduced that changes your calorie goal based on how much you workout.

I'm an intermittent exerciser right now, and I have the same weight loss goals regardless of how much I burn, so this makes sense for me. If I find my progress slows, I may go back to the method I've been using up until now. I know how the math works, so I'm fairly confident my ranges won't change that much; I average around 1500-1600 calories and that's good for weight loss most of the time. I actually got this far on substantially more (My first 20 lbs came off at 1800 calories a day or more)! And today's workout didn't change my goal for the day at all, so I think this'll work. It was 1410 - 1760 before, and it's 1410 - 1760 after, so that works for me.
